Hold the sleep and home button down for at least 15 seconds. See if that reboots it. Hold it till the Apple logo appears.

Never done this, but I hear if you open iTunes, plug your phone in, and then hold the sleep button and home button down for 10 or 15 seconds, that will recover your phone. You may lose data and have to reload everything. I would search BEFORE I did this. Just in case it is wrong.

Now, i just did this WHILE connecting it to iTunes, and it restarted itself and all the data is still on there and everything is back to normal.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!:laugh2:
